Everything You Need To Know. About Our Cotton Range

Why Cotton?

Everything Is Used

The fiber is the primary reason for growing cotton. But the seeds are used for animal feed and human use (cottonseed oil). The plant stalks are tilled back in the soil after harvesting.

Sustainable

The seeds are planted in the spring and harvested in the fall. It takes about five to six months for the plant to mature and the bolls to open for harvesting.

Around A Long Time

Cotton has been around a very long time. Seeds dating back to 450 BC were found in Peru.

Cotton Farming Practices

Like most things in the last 21st century, farming has realy evolved. Cotton in the past 20 years have seen major changes in farming practices to increase overall efficiency. With cotton as popular as ever, so this allows farmers to find a balance between mass production and environmental friendliness.

Then considering the amount of water usage, soil loss, & energy usage associated with producing one pound of cotton, the numbers have declined over the past 2 decades. The good news is that emissions are down a third, too. It’s also important to note that for every pound of cotton fiber, there are roughly 1.6 pounds of other useful products being created, such as cottonseed oil, dairy feed, and mulch.
